    Disconnect one of the drives (whichever one doesn't have windows on it, obviously), install Swarm on the remaining one if it's not on there already and see if it still happens. Not sure what you'd do if that does turnb out to be the problem, but at least you'd know what it was....

      also, try turning off the powersaving mode that turns the HD off after X minute, it may by hanging on turning the HD back on

          Yeah, depending on ur settings, windows will turn ur monitor off after X minutes, HD's off after X minutes, S3 after X Minutes, and S4 after X Minutes (if enabled)...

          whereas Monitor is dependant on mouse moving or anything, HD is just dependant on whether its been accessed, so if its not used for ages, then it will turn off.

          S3 and S4 obviously turn HD off.
